TotalEnergies and its partner SOCAR (State Oil Company of the Republic of Azerbaijan) has announced the start of production of the first phase of development of the Absheron gas and condensate field in the Caspian Sea, around 100 km south-east of Baku.
This first phase connects a subsea production well to a new gas processing platform, itself linked to SOCAR’s existing facilities in Oil Rocks. It has production capacity of 4 million m3 of gas per day and 12 000 bpd of condensate. The gas will be sold on the domestic market in Azerbaijan.
The development of the Absheron field provides an additional gas supply to meet growing demand, at a competitive technical cost and low greenhouse gas emissions intensity, in line with the companys’ strategy.
TotalEnergies and SOCAR both hold a 50% interest in the project, which is operated by the joint company JOCAP (Joint Operating Company of Absheron Petroleum).
Nicolas Terraz, President, Exploration & Production at TotalEnergies, said: "We are very pleased to announce the start-up of the Absheron gas field, the result of our exploration team’s success. This project is in line with the Company's strategy of meeting the growing demand for gas and reinforces our partnership with the national company SOCAR.”
